For February 2024, Volkswagen India has announced significant benefits and discounts to boost sales. These include discounts of up to Rs 52,000 on the Virtus sedan and Rs 1.30 lakh on the Volkswagen Taigun SUV. The benefits consist of cash discounts, exchange bonuses, and corporate offers, and shall remain valid till February 29. A rival to the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder, Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, and Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, the midsize Taigun SUV gets a cash benefit of up to Rs 60,000, exchange benefits of up to Rs 40,000, and corporate benefits of up to Rs 30,000, totalling Rs 1.30 lakh. Its prices range from Rs 11.70 lakh for the Comfortline 1.0L TSI MT to Rs 19.74 lakh for the GT Plus 1.5L TSI AT (with new features). These prices are ex-showroom. 

Under the hood, the Volkswagen Taigun is equipped with the same TSI turbo-petrol engine options as the Skoda Kushaq –a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol and a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol. The former belts out 115bhp and 175Nm of torque, while the latter produces 148bhp and 250Nm of torque. Both motors come mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard, while the automatic gearbox options include a 6-speed torque converter for the 1.0 TSI and a 7-speed dual-clutch for the 1.5 TSI.

For this month, Volkswagen is offering discounts of up to Rs 52,000 on the Virtus, which include a cash discount of up to Rs 40,000 and exchange & loyalty benefits of up to Rs 40,000. Price-wise, Volkswagen's midsize sedan starts at Rs 11.56 lakh and goes up to Rs 19.41 lakh (ex-showroom). There are six variants on offer: Comfortline, Highline, Topline, GT, GT Plus, and GT Plus Edge.

The Volkswagen Virtus sits on the India-specific MQB-AO-IN platform that also underpins the Taigun. This means that the Virtus gets the same powertrain options as the Taigun. Transmission duties are carried out by a 6-speed manual (1.0 TSI), a 6-speed torque converter AT (1.0 TSI), or a 7-speed DSG (1.5 TSI), depending on the engine selected. In the segment, the Virtus goes toe-to-toe with the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Hyundai Verna, Skoda Slavia, and Honda City.

Currently, Volkswagen retails the Virtus, Taigun, and Tiguan (starting at Rs 35.17 lakh, ex-showroom) in the Indian market. While the first two get the same engine options, the Tiguan SUV is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine paired with a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission and all-wheel drive technology. The unit develops 187bhp at 4,200rpm to 6,000rpm and 320Nm of peak torque at 1,500rpm to 4,100rpm. Thanks to the adoption of BS6 Phase II standards, the model's fuel efficiency has increased to an ARAI-certified 13.54km/l (from 12.65km/l).
